Very thoughtful post badw0lf. I appreciate your sharing.
Its incredible, the roller coaster we call life. The ups and downs, bad choices, good choices, with intention behind each one of our choices ranging
in quality, along with expected and unexpected outcomes.
This, as you mentioned, brings light to the idea that our brains are so amazingly complex; sometimes we will try "anything" to feel better, to "fix"
something, all the while trying to figure ourselves out and understand what this life is. To understand how we can better ourselves, and lead a
healthier, "better" life.
Surely there are better ways, ways to improve. Mistakes happen. Addiction is real and a sincere problem for many people. Sometimes it can be
psychological in nature rather than physiological, but as a wise man once told me, with a smile on his face, "son, there is always a solution."
I know that for sure. I'm very grateful to be perfectly honest. I know life has its moments of sadness, moments where we can be vulnerable, moments
where we make mistakes.
I had those moments in the past in a profoundly tragic way. For years I lived in something very similar to what you described. I was living a life of
Now? Now Im not really sure...but I do know that im glad to be here and deeply thankful.
With hope, maybe Ill lend a hand to others in some special way, as I feel i have been given that kind of support.
